INTRO

Arizona State Road 89A boasts more climbs on it than any other road in the entire state, so it's no wonder that we stumbled across one more at the most famous National Park in the world. Excellent views abound on this one, from the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument at the start to the forested Kaibab Plateau.  
(Disclaimer: our route ends still 37 miles from the North Rim viewpoint)

Parking:
There is parking at the Pasture Canyon Lookout Point, about 2.1 miles (3.4km) into the climb.
Roadway:
The road past the Kaibab Visitor Center (SR 67) is closed winters (the visitor center itself is only open on weekends during the winter months). While you can still ride and finish the climb, there will be no support, and odds are high that there will be snow covering the road.

We recommend turning this climb into a full adventure, and staying at the North Rim Lodge, then riding down to the start of the climb (110 miles round trip). Sitting right on the edge of the canyon, the lodge has stunning views (and excellent breakfasts!)
